Question Rectifier won't unplug from bike, Please help

Once again, another issue with my 03 ZX6R. (I'm definitely not getting another Kawi) Anyway, after a month and a half wait, my new rectifier has finally come. Only problem is, one of the two plugs from the old one won't come loose, so I can't install the new one yet. IDK why its stuck so tightly, could it be melted or what? More importantly, what can I do to try to get them apart so that I can install the new one and ride??

Also, before the rectifier issue came about, I was having issues with my headlight. It would work at random times. It wouldn't be on when I first start the bike, but would sometimes come on somehow during the ride, what's up with that? And what can I do about it? I do wanna be able to ride at night lol.

As always, any help is greatly appreciated

Stock headlights. Pic set? What's that? I've been trying to pry them apart, but I don't wanna break anything...

Yeah, its the same clip that was on the other one, right? The other one came loose right away, so I know what to do as far as normally getting them apart, but that's not helping. Or is there something else you're referring to?

^This. Also the plugs sometimes will melt together. Gently try rocking them back and forth while pulling them apart.

Once you get the clip undone that hold the harness push the plugs together like you were trying to install them tighter then push the release clip(plug to plug) and pull apart. If your rec. fried it could be possible that you melted the plastic. If that is the case cut (mark if not color coded) on either side go to autoparts store and pick up the proper gauge male and female connectors and vwala!

. I know I can do this, but I was hoping not to have to. Looking like that may be my final option tho.
